Best Classical Albums 2015

Harmonically slippery, by turns ironically wry or darkly elusive, they are excellent works, and Franzetti’s bravura performances make an emphatic case for their artistic significance. © 2016 Culture Catch

Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, February 2015

It is an enormous amount of music. And I am happy to say it is all very worthy of our era and our ears. There are seven mostly exceptional piano sonatas and a sonatina, a good deal of other interesting pieces such as the partita, and a volume devoted to music for children/beginners that is redolent with the Weinberg touch. Allison Brewster Franzetti does a marvelous job bringing out the Weinberg ethos. She seems made for this music.

And so I cherish these four volumes, personally. They bring to us a musical world of which we knew little (here in the States, anyway) until now. His piano music is as central as his symphonies. It is a fine thing to be able to hear all of the former, so well played.

An indispensable set! © 2015 Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review Read complete review

Brewster Franzetti…gives one full value in each and every piece. …I feel that these performances are authentic.

It was a wonderful journey, with its ups and downs, and well worth taking with Allison Brewster Franzetti as our guide. © 2015 Fanfare
